Ted Foss Move Over Law enforced
Minnesota State Patrol released a crash video to promote safety and to remind motorists to give wide berth to emergency vehicles of face a citation, Pioneer Press reported. Too many state troopers and emergency vehicles have been struck by oncoming traffic.
Star Tribune reported that six emergency vehicles in the last month have been hit performing their duties. State Patrols are calling attention to the Ted Foss "Move Over" law, which is to pull over or give at least one lane of space for vehicle to pass by. The law was named by the Minnesota State Patrol after Minnesota State Patrol Cpl. was killed during a traffic stop in 2000. From 2001-2005 passing vehicles have injured 126 state troopers, Star Tribune reported.
